23/11/20 – Local wanderer

Nic and I have today and tomorrow booked off work. Today we walked seven miles around our local area wandering the scenic routes between errands. We stopped for a while to watch these parakeets shouting loudly at a squirrel in that hole in the tree! We’re not too sure who we were rooting for though…Continue reading “23/11/20 – Local wanderer”

22/11/20 – 12 miles of nattering

I’m really enjoying being able to meet up with friends, one-on-one, during this lockdown. It means I’m getting a lot of walking in! Today I racked up another 12 miles from chatting and walking to two separate friends. It’s a wonderful time of year for it as well as the air is so crisp andContinue reading “22/11/20 – 12 miles of nattering”

21/11/20 – More weekend walking

Lovely, muddy walk with Nic today. Feeling smug in our wellies as we trudged through Sydenham Woods to get to the view of London from The Horniman Museum. Then Nic dropped me off so I could go for another walk around Norwood Lake with Mariana! Lots of walking with my faves, followed by a SainsContinue reading “21/11/20 – More weekend walking”

19/11/20 – Tofu time!

I had to get a bit it resourceful this evening when it came to pressing tofu for our dinner… Ended up using a bunch of heavy cookbooks and topped it off with a spider plant, poor thing didn’t stand a chance! We made sweet and sour stir fry but the sauce was only okay. IContinue reading “19/11/20 – Tofu time!”

18/11/20 – Morning sunshine run

Started off today with a 8km run that I only mildly had to drag myself out of bed for this morning. I’m enjoying it a lot more recently, now that I’m running for the fun of running, rather than being so competitive with myself and others. I still have a while to go yet, butContinue reading “18/11/20 – Morning sunshine run”

16/11/20 – Forgotten self care

I’ve been letting things slip recently with looking after myself. So last night I took some time to file down and paint my nails in a fun pattern, then after dinner tonight I had a lush soak in the bath reading more Harry Potter. I feel so much better from it and I can’t recommendContinue reading “16/11/20 – Forgotten self care”

15/11/20 – Soggy catchup

I met up with my friend today for a walking catch up (a luxury of lockdown 2.0). We walked nearly 7 miles over 2.5 hours catching up on so many things. It was truly wonderful and we already have another walk booked in for next week! It absolutely chucked it down but that just madeContinue reading “15/11/20 – Soggy catchup”

14/11/20 – Lockdown escapism

I’m still absolutely loving rereading Harry Potter as a bit of lockdown escapism. Three weeks later and I’m up at 1am as I finish the 5th book like it’s 2003… I just can’t get enough of them! I think it took me about three months to finish the series last time I read them, I’veContinue reading “14/11/20 – Lockdown escapism”
